I have trained and was given 1st and 2nd dan black belts by the late "Sensei Kimura".
I had trained with him on numerous occassions and his legacy still inspires me and how I teach the art to my students.
The late "Sensei Kimura" was a great loss to everyone who does Kimura shukokai and its was a shame to loose him in his prime.
After over twenty years learning and teaching karate, my love for karate grows daily, there is so much I still want to learn.

My aim is to teach good quality karate to everyone willing to learn, I also want to pass on my knowledge of competing locally and internationally  to my students, some of who are already competing on the "FEKO"  (Federation Of England Karate Association) squad.
